It is a work created with the will to continue.

This will be my first solo exhibition in about three years since I held my first exhibition in 2019.
The title is “REVENGE POP”.
If I can draw something that someone finds fun or interesting, that’s what makes me feel good.
But in life, there are many things that make me feel sad and angry, and I despair at myself that I can’t do anything about it.
For several years, I kept asking myself why I am painting and whether there is any meaning in painting.
I love the word “POP” and what it means, and I believe in it. In order to embody that someday, I thought that I should look back on the dark, seething parts of myself and the past that I regret, and incorporate them into my work. I want to take revenge on that feeling. That is the reason why I wanted to do this exhibition. thank you. What is pixiv? https://www.pixiv.net
